Default Great Lakes Cobra Club

Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you know about the Great Lakes Cobra Club. We are an active group of Cobra enthusiasts centered around the South East Michigan area.

The group was started by Terry and Karen Anway of Goodrich, Michigan, who have been organizing the very impressive display of Cobras on Hazel Street for the last four years at the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise.

The Club meets on the third Tuesday of the month; even months at Rochester Mills Brewing Co., and odd months at the Airport Inn in Waterford.

Additional information and event schedules can be viewed at:

http://greatlakescobra.com

If you are anywhere near here, please come out and join us!

regards,

Jeff Burgy

Default Woodward Dream Cruise

Scott -

You will thoroughly enjoy the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise. The largest display of Cobra replicas is usually the GLCC. We gather on Hazel Street, on the West side of Woodward Ave., about a block South of Maple Rd. Parking with our group is done on a pre-registered basis - we have to pay the city for our parking area. If you send me an e-mail, I'll get you the details.

There is also usually a pretty large gathering of FFR guys - Greg Kulp normally organizes their parking arrangements.

No matter who you park with, you want to plan on arriving EARLY on Saturday morning, like around 7:00 or 8:00AM. By 9:00AM, traffic will be slowing down, by 10:00AM, it will be CRAWLING up and down Woodward.

Each year, the festivities start earlier. The official cruise is only on Saturday, but local cruisers will start cruising Woodward the Saturday before, and each evening, the number of cruisers on Woodward Ave. progressively grows.

The cruising area is about 16 miles of Woodward Avenue, through about 8 cities. Each town is sponsoring some kind of activities or car shows. The Police are usually pretty accomodating - I have seen open headers, slicks, real race-cars, and plenty of whacky one-offs out there. They do NOT tolerate any burn-outs, and will ticket for drag-racing, speeding, or burning rubber. That doesn't stop a lot of people from showing off, though.

Our group usually takes a parade-lap (20-30 cars) up and down Woodward, though each year, as the numbers (of OTHER cruisers) increase, we have had to make our lap earlier and earlier. Most people with big-engine cars like to get there early, sit back, relax, and watch.

It's a blast from the past you will never forget!






regards,

Jeff Burgy

Jeff, thanks for the reply. Are all of your spots reserved by now or is there something available for an out of towner? I arrive on Thursday PM and will leave some time on Sunday. Let me know. I'd be happy to pay the toll.

Jeff, one more question. Is there any place to purchase leaded gas?

Scott,

If you are looking for racing (leaded 110 octane) fuel, there is a Citco station just a few blocks south of our group on Woodward Ave. It's the lowest price I've found, $3.00 a gallon.

As far as parking passes go for Hazel Street, send me a private message and I'll see if Terry Anway has any left. If he doesn't, there is another possible location.

Hi Ross. We're starting a MN Cobra Club (trying). I have all the Great Lakes membership documents from my trip to Woodward. Do you, or your club , see any problem with us "borrowing " some of your fine organizational work. It sure would help us get a fast start and get to having fun events rather than meetings around rules.

Scott,

I don't see that as a problem. Have you decided on a name yet?
Maybe you could bring some of your members to next years Woodward Dream Cruise.

No discussion on the name, but I remember your advice on making it to encourage a broad audience. Thanks so much for the continued support.

Scott,

E-mail coming your way.

Everyone else,

The location for the odd month meetings has changed. The new location is the Mesquite Creek restaurant on M-15 in Clarkston.

Default Cobra Club

Scott Evans,

How is it going with your club formation? Pretty #*@&ing cold here. How about up there?

We at the Great Lakes Cobra Club have some great plans in store for this year. Of course the one and only Woodward Dream Cruise. Our Team Jenny fund raisers and other exciting plans. Hope to see you at the WDC this year. Keep in touch.

Ross

P.S. We have over 130 Cobras in the club now.
